2019 outside linebacker Owen Pappoe has told Maize n Brew that he will visit Michigan with Kurt Taylor, who has already committed to play for the Wolverines.

“I really want to go up [to Michigan] for a visit,” the linebacker mentioned. “I am trying to go up with Kurt [Taylor] one day. In the future I will.”

Pappoe will be a sophomore at Grayson High School in Loganville, Georgia this fall. Meanwhile, Taylor will be a senior at the same school. Taylor, a 2017 three-star running back, committed to Michigan on October 16, 2015.

Pappoe has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Boston College, Brigham Young, California, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Jacksonville State, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Massachusetts, Memphis, Miami (FL), Michigan, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, South Alabama, South Carolina, TCU, Tennessee, Texas-San Antonio, Tulane, UAB, Vanderbilt, and West Virginia.

“He is one of the best coaches,” Pappoe said regarding Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.

The 2019 graduate will attend The Opening Finals from July 7-10. As a matter of fact, Pappoe was the first freshman to ever be invited to The Opening Finals and is considered to be the top player in the nation.

“I am looking forward to going out and competing against the top players in the country,” he said. “I want to make a name for myself.”

Michigan offered the 6-foot-0, 200-pound linebacker on May 8, 2015. He told Maize n Brew that he will commit to a school during the summer going into his senior season.
